Sony's Yoshida says PlayStation may evolve from a hardware brand to a cloud-based service

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Next year, Sony will release Gaikai’s much-touted cloud technology onto the PlayStation 4, a move that could mark the beginning of the PlayStation brand’s evolution from a line of consoles to an all-encompassing service, according to the head of SCE Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida.

“Speaking of the ultimate goal, we would like to deliver PlayStation games to all devices,” Yoshida told Dengeki Online (translated by Dualshockers). “So we’re considering various things like PC, TVs, Blu-ray players, smartphones and tablets. We hope to continue to expand not only to Sony devices, but even to devices other than Sony’s. This is still being studied.”

Sony's Yoshida says PlayStation may evolve from a hardware brand to a cloud-based service

“We previously spoke about PlayStation going from hardware to something closer to a service, regardless of the device — Of course PlayStation will still be the center, but I think we would like to expand to different things.”

PlayStation on nearly any device, huh? That would certainly change the way we experience a video game, being able to play it on a smartphone at one point and then continue it later on a PC. At the same time, PlayStation fans should be happy to hear that Sony isn’t planning to abandon console-making anytime soon.

As the first stage of this possible Sony cloud revolution, the Gaikai PS4 service will allow owners of the next-gen console to play PS3 titles, making up for the PS4’s lack of native backwards compatibility. It will be available early next year in North America, a few months after the PlayStation 4 launches on November 15 in the above-mentioned continent and November 29 in Europe.
